Council Committees

Committee Structure

The Henderson Mayor and City Council reorganized its committee structure in 2008 and 2010.  By virtue of these reorganizations, the City Council itself serves as The Committee of the Whole for matters involving finance and budget, public utilities, public works, journal, legislative and community development matters.  The Mayor and City Council meet  on the second  Monday of each month and deal with matters that formerly were dealt with by the six committees previously mentioned.  Additionally, special meetings and work sessions of the City Council are called on as as-needed basis to consider matters as needed, i.e., budget and finance.

The City Council now maintains six standing committees as follows:  Public Safety, Public Works, Human Resources, Land Planning and Development and Boards and Commissions.  Each committee is comprised of four elected officials.  The Mayor appoints the chairman and vice chairman along with the committee members in January following the installation of a new city council every two years.

The Land Planning Committee meets on the fourth Thursday of every month (subject to change).  All other City Council committees meet on an as-needed basis and are empowered to make recommendations for the full City Council to consider at work sessions and/or regular meetings.  Committee meetings are open to the public and are noticed in accordance with State law.
